Biography & Memoir • 22.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

In more pages than are necessary, Joseph McBride reduces the popular filmmaker to Freud 101. Spielberg fans will no doubt relish the gossipy details, whether or not they agree with the biographer’s assessment of the man and his work. David Hilder reads appropriately at a brisk trot that skims the surface of prose requiring little else. He has a sharp, clear voice and excellent intonation. Just as McBride gets many incidental facts wrong, so Hilder gets a lot of pronunciations wrong, especially Jewish names and Yiddishisms. Both writer and narrator should be taken cum grano salus.
